At DeSoto Hills, the Student Ministries Program is an integral part of training students to meet the challenge of ministry in this decade and beyond. Service is an integral part of the training program at DeSoto Hills. Jesus Christ Himself is our model: “… the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…” (Matthew 20:28). Jesus demonstrated this servant attitude when He taught and fed crowds of thousands, when He dealt individually with outcasts like Zaccheus and the Samaritan woman, and when He washed the feet of His twelve disciples, saying, “I have set you an example, that you should do as I have done for you… Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them” (John 13:15 & 17).
Can God hear me? Does God even exist? Ok, what about miracles—do they really happen? Did Jesus really rise from the dead, really? And what about all the other stuff in the Bible? Did it really happen? How do you know? When it comes to faith, we all have our doubts. Every single one of us. And yet, for many of us, church can feel like the last place we would go to ask questions. Why is that? For most of us, doubt feels like something we should hide, ignore, or silence. If there’s a volume dial, we should turn it down. But is that always true? Does having faith mean I can’t have doubt or vice versa? When we look closer we find that amplifying our doubt, turning up the volume on the right questions, may just be the best thing that ever happened to our faith. We’ll be exploring these ideas March 18, March 25, and April 1st.
Here is a Blog Post from KJ after the concert in the attic on Friday night. What a great concert even though the air condition was broken.
